    I use this to carry my 15" MacBook Pro, iPad, as well as a couple books... with lots of room for extras. This is the best computer bag I have ever owned.

    Comments about Command Messenger Bag:

    Bought it for my husband as a birthday gift. He loves it especially very roomy! He is a software engineer so he needs to carry laptop and some other electronic devices. This bag is so roomy that he can easily pack all his staffs in it. The strap is very comfortable also. The only con is it is much bigger than I expected. I should have ordered medium in stead of large.

    Comments about Command Messenger Bag:

    Love it but could be just a little wider. My laptop is large so it just squeezes in the zippered part. I checked dimensions and they worked but because of the zipper a bit of the width is lost if that makes sense. No zipper and the laptop would fit perfectly. Now I have to open the all around zipper to use laptop section. Bummer. Great bag though, quality is fantastic.

      Beautiful bag. I seem to find new hidden compartments and zippers every day. The medium is slightly bigger than I was hoping, but no complaints... it's better than being too small!

        Love it! Actually, more than I expected and I had high expectations. Minor (really!) complaints: 1) I wish it had a loop or ring in the main compartment to hook keys to. 2) I wish I could have ordered a customized version with my choice of colors/etc.

        Comments about Command Messenger Bag:

        Bought this bag to replace a Tumi briefcase I have used for decades. Weight was killing me. Was worried there were not enough pockets to store everything I needed on the road. I had to thin out some of the things I bring but hardly use; would love to see more pockets in the Timbuk2.

        Would be great if they had a pocket/storage are for headphones...would give it 5 stars then

          Comments about Command Messenger Bag:

          I take this bag with me to the office every day and travel. I travel at least twice a month and this bag has well thought out compartments that can be accessed without opening the main compartment. I use on compartment on the side for chargers and wires. The pocket on the flap for earphones and headsets. I use the napoleon pocket for travel documents and where I put my metal objects when I pass through security. All are accessible individually without opening the main compartment.

          Comments about Command Messenger Bag:

          I bought this bag for a large laptop. I used the fit guide on the website and ordered the bag that it said to. I wish I had ordered a size larger. The laptop does fit but it is extremely tight. With the laptop in the bag the top handle sits to the side, I can not use the Velcro rain tabs, and I can hardly fit the charge cable in with it. There is no padding on the bottom so you have to be very careful setting the bag down with a laptop in it. I do love the bag, I just wish it were larger and more padded.
